That’s Baller: Diddy, Beyoncé, and Drake Named Forbes’ Top 3 Highest Earning Musicians of 2017


Forbes has revealed their annual list of the highest-paid musicians of the year, and this year, Diddy, Beyonce, Drake, and The Weeknd are among the top earners.

 

Diddy (Sean Combs) was named the highest earner of the year, raking in $130 Million due to his endorsement deal with Ciroc vodka, the sale of one-third of Sean John for $70 Million, and the Bad Boy Family Reunion tour.

 

Queen Bey reigned supreme as well coming in at number two on the list. Of course, her $105 Million earnings came from her Formation World Tour, which ended in late 2016. The tour grossed a whopping $250 Million in total.
